When it was announced that the Minions from the Despicable Me franchise were getting their own spinoff film, many people weren’t all that excited for it. This was mainly because many people were tired of the Minions and felt that the Minions couldn’t hold their own as main characters rather than side characters. Thankfully, I am a huge fan of the Minions and thought that I’d love to see them as the stars of their own film, so I was quite excited for this movie. Did I end up liking it? Well, let’s find out!
Illumination Entertainment’s Minions opened up to the #1 spot in the weekend box office grossing over $115 million domestically. It’s said to be the second highest opening weekend for an animated film after Shrek the Third.
Have you seen it? Was it good? Do you plan on seeing it if you haven’t already?
Finding Nemo is a film that I’ll always cherish. Not because it’s so good (which it is), but it was the first movie I ever saw in the theaters. I’m not someone who goes to the theaters much, so I was very excited to see a film in the theaters for the first time!
The film, as you all know, is about a father clownfish named Marlin, voiced by Albert Brooks, who teams up with a royal blue tang with short-term memory loss, named Dory, voiced by Ellen DeGeneres, to find his son, Nemo, voiced by Alexander Gould, who has been “fish-napped” by Australian divers.
Wow, what a wordy synopsis!
